YTFG at Sydney Royal Easter Show
Once again the YTFG was included in the Embroiderers' Guild display at the Royal Easter Show on Thursday 27th March. The 2 banners showing the various statewide Clubs and the Distance Course students as at October 2007 were on display. We also showcased the special work commissioned from the recent Graduate students which is on loan for 12 months for display purposes. Nola Williams and Judith Langdon spoke to many, many people who stopped to look at the work, and I'm sure some new students for the Distance Course will come from some of those discussions. We also had the Group photo album with photos of events since 1995 on show. The Group banners from the some of the country adult Guild Groups were also on display and lots of interest was shown in them too. A very successful day all around. Special thanks to Nola's husband Laurie, without his help and support we would not have had the display in Sydney on time, or Nola and Judith to (wo)man it !
